Son reveals what Tottenham star Cristian Romero has been doing behind the scenes


Cristiano Romero joined Tottenham during the 2021 summer transfer window, on loan from Atalanta with that deal set to be made permanent this year.

And, given how well Romero has adapted to the Premier League thus far, Spurs fans are likely eager to see the South American stick around for as long as possible.

The Argentine has excelled in Antonio Conte’s backline, stepping out of defence to begin attacks with ease.

The latest example of this came on Sunday when Tottenham saw off Leicester. Romero stepped out of the defensive line to make two tackles, which led to Dejan Kulusevski receiving the ball and then setting up Heung-min Son.

Following the game, Son was full of praise for Romero’s efforts in the build-up to said goal:

"Obviously you're scoring goals but you're not scoring alone,” Son said. “There's always a previous action. Cuti won it back twice so he made one tackle and then the second tackle was obviously risky, which a defender has to do sometimes.

"Cuti did an unbelievable job, not only this situation but the whole game. He was fantastic. This goal for me goes to Cuti because he deserves the credit 100%. I'm very happy to score the goals but this one goes to Cuti."

The South Korean star also praised how Romero has adapted behind the scenes and his desire to learn the language and speak to everyone in the squad.

"It's fresh energy every time new players come in," said Son. "The first time is not the best feeling because it's a weird feeling, we don't know each other, but now we understand each other and Cuti has tried really hard, wanting to speak to everyone, so this brings us all more and more closer and this changes everything.'
